    Reduce, reuse, and recycle.
    Cut down on what we throw away. Follow the three "R's" to conserve natural resources and landfill space.

    We have been decluttering all the rooms in our home.  The result has been more overall living space and a cleaner look to the space.  
    All items we removed were either recycled to donation centers or processing centers to minimize our carbon footprint.

    I can see that people really want to engage in meaningful action,  but life is busy and for many of us it is hard to find/participate in opportunities. 
    Start with the easier, more straightforward and accessible opportunities every little bit we can do toghether will help our planet in the end.
